The report highlights progress made in research activities in FY 06 to achieve the following objectives: 1. Continue crosses for marker-aided selection of CBB, BCMNV, rust and anthracnose into elite African materials. 2. Cross lines with HB resistance to develop RIL populations for marker identification. 3. Screen RIL populations for root rot resistance.
